rat's nest

By 9:07 AM , , ,

I have really let myself go this year. Which is why it was opportune that I ran into my favorite hairdresser when I started to look like...


Cousin It from the Addams Family

Slash from Guns 'n Roses

I honestly can't remember the last time my hair was this long.
Cut it all off, I said. Not so short that I have to come back every 5 weeks. But short enough that it doesn't get caught in shoulder straps or wind turbines.
It looks dry and wild because she put a lot of product in there (and it was super blustery in GGP yesterday). But I feel lighter and the hair feels great. For the better part of the year I was hiding behind my mane and it also made me lazier and lazier about my "do". I would just twist and clip and not give a rat's ass about this rat's nest. And it's a slippery slope when you start to cut corners on personal grooming - especially alarming for somebody who used to be obsessive about her hair.  Thank god I took the time this week to at last address this issue, as it was becoming unseemly and quite urgent.

Usually hair stylists suspect that you're going through an emotional episode when you request such a transformation. Number one is heartbreak. But this time it's not that. I just haven't felt myself for months and wanted to at least look the part of being me.

She also gave me wispy baby bangs; and while I'm not so concerned about "looking [even] younger", I don't want to look older either. I have to agree that I'm back to being myself again. Noriko is a gem and it was a pure gift that I ran into her on the street. She does great hair, but more than that, she gets me. I hadn't seen her in over 8 years when she put her career on hiatus to have a baby. I've had great cuts from others in between, but she was the best by a long shot and the one that got away. But she's back now and we've reunited once again. Hallelujah.

You carry around a lot of energy in your hair, mostly dead. Doctors and forensic scientists can read your health and diet history by analyzing a single shaft of your hair follicle. Shedding this much weight and personal history in an afternoon is rather freeing. Very project hot air balloon.
